Cooper is a 5-11 junior catcher from Virginia with broad shoulders and some strength in his legs. He hits out of quiet approach with high hands and a controlled leg lift trigger and shows some strength in his swing. Watching Cooper for 2 games shows the trouble in evaluating hitters in game action. In one game Cooper struck out three times, although he really battled one at bat against a top prospect pitcher. In the other game he laced a couple of balls right on the nose and showed his strength and power. Cooper’s swing is pretty sound and we see him improving as he gets stronger. As a catcher, Cooper’s abilities are raw. He’s an upright catcher and has a long, slinging arm action that doesn’t generate good arm speed. He’s also played some first base before. Cooper is a 7.67 runner in the 60. He’s also an excellent student.

Will Cooper is a medium framed right handed hitting catcher from McLean, Virginia, in the 2006 class. He showed playable defensive skills behind the plate with a top throwing velocity of 70 mph and pop times in the 2.15 -2.22 range consistently. Cooper struggled in batting practice when he was trying to lift and drive the ball, but hit very well in games when he shortened up his swing. He started off with a nice line drive single to right field, staying behind the ball well, which gave him confidence and followed up with a bomb over the left fielder’s head that almost left the Duke ballpark. Cooper has some pop in his bat that should improve as he gets stronger.
